Nick Gomez Theater 101 Anne Price 3/12/12 Hamlet Experience Paper On Sunday, March 11 th , I attended the production showing of William Shakespeare’s Hamlet, which was directed by Gordon Reinhart and put on by the Boise State Theatre Arts in the Danny Peterson Theatre. I know that we are supposed to wait until we see both productions before we decide which one we want to write about for each paper, but this was my first experience with theatre ever so I really wanted to share my experience.

Both theatre and movies have a story with characters and a theme within their productions but watching this production of Hamlet I felt so much more engaged than in any movie. Movies have engaged me a great deal more through an emotional aspect but with this production I felt as if in a way I was part of the play.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
